Nelly Akomah Death: Tributes
Heartbroken friends described Mrs Akomah as a ‘lovely’ person, while fellow churchgoers said she was as an ‘understanding’ leader of the Croydon group of the Upper Tooting Methodist Church in south London. Paying tribute to the mother-of-two, the president of Ms. Akomah’s Nigeria Methodist Mission UK, Dame Susan Solanke, said: ‘Sister Nelly, only last week we were all at a weekend retreat, full of life. ‘You were such a valuable member of the mission who will be sorely missed. My heart is broken by this cruel, mindless, and senseless attack. I pray God brings the culprits to book as soon as possible.’
A post-mortem examination carried out on Thursday, June 22 was inconclusive, police said, amid further tests taking place to establish a cause of death.
